Roger Meddows Taylor Born 26 July, 1949. He is/was the drummer for Queen. He is the other co-writer of the musical "We Will Rock You". Not a good example of "Like a fine wine, people only get better with age...".
John Deacon Born 19 August, 1951. He was the bass player of Queen. For their first record, his name was written 'Deacon John' because Freddie and Roger thought it sounded more interesting.
Queen Born 1970-71 The Origin of the name comes from Freddie Mercury. A common misconception is that the name, Queen, roots from Freddie's homosexuality. But, in actuallity, Freddie came up with the name because of the conotations that go along with the word: pomposity, regality, and elegance - very fitting indeed. Queen are the writers of famous hits such as Bohemian Rhapsody, We Will Rock You, We Are the Champions, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Another Bites the Dust, and Under Pressure. One could say they ended shortly after Freddie's death, but Brian and Roger still do gigs, commercials, musicals... you name it. They are alive in our hearts, and will never truly end.
